Hi Everyone
The other day I was reading a book about addictive thinking and personalities and I kept wondering how/does, karma play into our thinking.If anyone has read any of my opinions about the cognitive(thoughts)approach to life in other postings they will know that I believe that thoughts create emotions and over time emotions create our behavior.If this is true,which I believe it is.Does or can Karma effect our thoughts or can/does it only effect other things in or about our lifes?
A basic definition that I use for Karma is,'Action and reaction,what we send out comes back to us.'Meaning that errors or mistakes in life require redress or understanding so that we may learn from them(heal).If this doesn't happen in the lifetime where it occured then it may/or will happen in a succeeding one.Karma is not punishment.I know that there is good and bad Karma and that I am only addressing bad Karma in my definition.The reason for this is that I don't see having a addictive personality as a positive choice in lifestyles created from good Karma,it must result from bad Karma.
Addictive personalities exhibit a thinking process that is different from the norm.But this process seems as real to them as normal processes appear to normal people.It is just as difficult for an addictive personality to understand normal thinking processes as it is for a normal person to understand addictive thinking processes.How then,in karmic terms,does this thinking difference occur?Does Karma effect the actions that take place outside our lifes so that we fall into an addiction.You know have bad events occur to us so that we suffer and in turn choose an addiction to something to help with the suffering.Or does Karma effect our thoughts which creates emotions that we try to deal with in an adictive environment?Or does Karma work through both ways?Or am I way off base on this.Please let me know what you think about this.





Thank you,dane
